Ellen DeGeneres’ Energy Secret: ‘No Cake, No Cookies, No Candy’

http://stylenews.peoplestylewatch.com

With two major gigs–as host of her own talk show and as an American Idol judge–along with side jobs as a face of brands like CoverGirl and Vitaminwater Zero, it’s amazing that Ellen DeGeneres has the energy to eat dinner, much less keep her audience in stitches. So, what’s the slim 52-year-old comedian’s secret to staying energized and fit? “No cake, no cookies, no candy,” says the cover model, talking about her “sugar fast,” in this month’s issue of Shape. A committed vegan, DeGeneres also says her regular regime includes “no animals, no dairy, nothing processed; a lot of soup, veggies, rice, beans, legumes.” And she views these dietary restrictions as a positive thing, saying, “I want to be on my toes; I want to have energy. And as much as the diet seems like a sacrifice, it’s helping me.” She’s also a devotee of daily sun salutations: “I first started doing power yoga in L.A., which really makes no sense,” she jokes. “Power yoga? It’s the opposite of what it should be. Yoga should calm you down!” And how does the star find time for exercise in her crazy

Fitness, Not Foreplay: Tantric Yoga

http://chicagoist.com

Despite their initial reservations, men in Chicago are turning the other cheek and joining all-male nude yoga classes, an exercise the Associated Press calls “a form of sensualized yoga practiced nude.” Per (pronounced “Pear”) Erez, who teaches the classes in his private Rogers Park studio, limits the number of men who attend the sessions in order to “establish clarity of intention” and to provide a more “individualized approach to teaching.” Erez, 43, a well-established yoga instructor who has taught traditional “clothed” yoga for over 20 years (Oprah Winfrey is a former client), believes practicing nude yoga offers men a chance to be less concerned about “how they show up physically on their mat,” and gradually reduces “their own inner critical voice about what the male form should look like in others.”Chicagoist: What is the number one question you get asked by beginners? Per Erez: Oddly enough, it is probably not what most people would think. When I first began teaching these classes, I got much of what I called the “Big E” question from men who were concerned about bodily responses during classes.

An Hour Exercise Enough, For Women With Normal Weight

http://living.oneindia.in

The moderate exercise helps middle-aged women avoid putting on the pounds, but only if they are already going on normal weight. The women who are overweight or obese do not appear to reap the same benefits in terms of weight-gain prevention, says the new studies.The new studies helps the women figure out how much exercise is sufficient to keep from tipping the scales again. It involved more than 34, 000 women from US and looked at how much weight they gained over a period of 13 years, from 1992 to 2007. The women were divided into three groups: a) those who engaged in less than 150 minutes of moderate-level physical activity per week; b) those who performed 150 to 420 minutes of this type of activity per week; and c) those who did more than 420 minutes per week, which comes out to one hour a day. Moderate-level activities included the activities like brisk walking, gardening and leisurely bicycling. On the average, women gained about 6 pounds or 2.6 Kilos, during the study period.

Time to rethink fitness plan

http://www.clarionledger.com

The debate over causes and solutions for the national obesity problem is far from settled.Every day, news stories point accusingly to a different scapegoat - restaurants, sodas, food advertisements, video games, home computers and even sugar substitutes. Billions of dollars are spent annually on dieting and supplements but the rate of obesity continues to increase. Perhaps the most important piece of the puzzle is the physical inactivity that has become our way of life. Previous generations worked hard physically to wash clothing, heat their homes and get food on the table. We drive everywhere we go, and most of our daily chores are performed with little or no physical effort. A new study published recently in the Journal of the American Medical Association seems to add to the confusion about weight control and weight loss. The participants in this study were middle-aged women who reported one hour of exercise daily. They were able to maintain their weight or limit weight gain, but did not lose any weight with this level of activity.
